I think you can copy this link in you browser and see the video, its darling, or go to my Facebook page.

Tanner was so cute on Studio 5 today.  They did a great story on  him and the Alta football team.  What a great thing it has been to have Tanner participate in sports at Alta High.  I was so worried that he would be teased and sad and never live a full life.  Seeing him at school or just out and about in the community makes me happy.  I never thought he would be so popular and have so much fun!  From proms to girl choice dances, football, swim, and baseball Tanner has done it all.  we are so proud of you Tanner!!!

austin letter

So this week was filled with a whole lot of service and tracking again. Other than that we had a good week this week on the service list was clean out a nasty SES pool. There was a semi investo who has been investigating for a few years now and we helped him with his little pond that he has in his back yard I had to shop vac it out then clean out the leaves then scrub it down with bunch of Clorox and man that was the worst thing I have ever smelled. It wasn’t that hard it was pretty small but it had been like that for a year and a half so it was pretty rancid. Like rotten eggs milk and some moldy trash in one combined smell it was not pleasant but it had to be done!

The next went to the Yoder’s and shoveled coal for them for a good 2 hours that was so hard if you want another good work out just go shovel a pile of coal for 2 hours every day. Then later that night we got to sort potato into bags for an hour then basketball to top it all off that was such a hard morning to get up form the next day. Then we went to brother Taylors and helped him with a bunch of little things that he was not able to do. Moving furniture and stuff like that.

But two cool missionary stories happened this week. One is, we where tracking and this woman had been praying for her son to get his faith back and wanted to know how to do that. Later that day we knocked on her door so that was really awesome she let us in we talked to her and her 2 daughters her husband and son were out hunting. Then later in the week we got a call from this guy named Larry who said that he wants to change his life and his brother is a member in Las Vegas ward and his brother told him to call us. He did and he came to church he wants to meet and take the lesson and he is golden!

Thanks for all that everyone does whether you are a missionary or just a normal everyday Joe you are all god’s children and all he wants for us to do is come back to him. Once we do this we will feel joy and peace. I’m so thankful for everyone this thanksgiving season and for all the blessing that out loving heavenly father has given us. Be safe and have a good thanksgiving eat a lot for the missionaries that may not be able to eat that much. I will hopefully be taken care of :)!!!

With all my love everybody,

We are in!!!

Its been three months of renovating, painting and stress but we are finally in our new home.  Yes yes yes I know we are no where near done with the renovating, painting and stress but we are living at our new address.  I don't know why this is so hard for me.  I love to have a project going, the problem is I'm soooo busy with all my other jobs I can't seem to get unpacked and finish this house!!!

Bry says be patient, ok I will how ever I can not be patient with everything strew from here to New York.  If I could just put a few things away I would be so happy.

 I painted the cabinet  doors cream and took out the rock back splash behind the stove. As you can see we don't have the tile put in yet nor do we have a working hood at the moment.  the hood I want is 1,200$ and needless to say that is not going to happen.  Bry is going to make a cute cover for the  hood and trim it out with a drop hood, when I do not know as his to do list is a mile long.
 The island is also going to be ripped out next summer it does not have an over hang for the bar stools and it only seats three very uncomfortably so we will make a larger one that will seat five and be bigger to utilize the space.(and when i say we I mean Bry)

The laundry room is one of my favs so far, however its far from complete but it so much more open.  We knocked out the closet from my office and will be putting in cabinets and a folding table.  For now I have two little armories from Ikea that I just painted white that will work till I can get the real thing.  Also waiting on a little sink for the corner of the room, its plumbed but again the $$$ thing.

 I know I know it still has the tape on from painting it black. I'm not quite finished. I bought a high gloss paint and started painting away because that whats I did with my door at the other house.  Well this door is so old and there is no over hang to keep the weather off of it???? so it was flaking like crazy so I'm going to have to do the final coat in a mat finish to hide all the imperfections.

Last but not least is my family room again the rock???? (not a fan)  we took out the rock and arch and just dry walled a fireplace in.  Again not finished, the tile is picked out the mantle is number 14 on brys to do list so spring maybe??? but for  know it looks ok, just need to clean up a bit still trying to find spots to put things in.
